Former Democratic Senator and Libertarian presidential candidate Mike Gravel is on a trip to South Korea, trying to bring about a national ballot initiative system there. He was interviewed recently on the show “Let’s Talk Pusan.” You can listen here – the interview itself is in English, just click play on the player underneath the number one.
The first half of the interview is about Mike Gravel himself and his political career, while the second half is about direct democracy, South Korea and its government, and why South Korea is likely to adopt a national initiative system.
(Full disclosure: I was a volunteer for Mike Gravel’s presidential campaign and I’m a volunteer for his campaign for national ballot initiatives in the United States. I’m also helping his effort in South Korea in a very small way.)
